Steamboat Bagels Logo Design

Commissioned Design, 2020

This is my process for creating a logo for the local Savannah, GA based company Steamboat Bagels, a new popup bagel store. For my process, I created thumbnails and experimented with colors and different fonts.


I experimented with different nautical themes that involved bagels along with different Savannah, GA elements, but ended up deciding to go for a steamboat that used a bagel for the paddlewheel. I played around with various fonts, and found a serif that complemented the vintage-style boat.
